High on the slopes of Africa’s second highest mountain, the Mt Kenya Safari Club straddles the Equator in a glory of luxurious cottages and elegant buildings set amid manicured lawns and decorative ponds.
Ever since the club was founded in 1959 by the Film Star William Holden, eccentric American Ray Ryan and Swiss Financial Carl Hirsch Mann, it has been a Mecca for the international jet set—its list of members read like who is who in the line of Loyalty, Aristocracy and the rich and famous.

WILDEBEEST


Watch the wildebeest migrations.
You are visiting Masai Mara to see the annual migrations which  starts from the month of  June and climaxes in the month of August before closing over to Serengeti towards mid Sept and towards the month of Oct .
.
What exactly is the wildebeest migrations ?
The wildebeest migration is a dramatic story. It takes place within Kenya and Tanzania and is the greatest wildlife show on earth. Between the open plains of Serengeti and the Masai Mara, thousands and thousands of wildebeest and zebras migrate to greener pastures as seasons change and circle of life and death continues. Predators closely follow the wildebeest migrations waiting for an opportunity to strike weak prey as they make their way into different territories.. The most interesting part is when you watch them as they cross the Mara River. The first ones to jump into the river are trampled upon to death by the following multitude. The dead animals become a bridge over which all the other animals cross the river. The crocodiles feed on the remaining carcasses for months.

Majority of tourists literally camp in the Mara during this period with their flashy digital cameras. They will trail the migrations and even the members of the big 5 are no longer an interest at this time.  When its time to cross over the river, the tourists will position themselves strategically along the Mara river, trying to get the best shot possible. Others will ride on the hot air balloon to watch the migrations from the skies. To show the implication of this phenomenal show, members of both local and international media also make their way to Mara if only to capture this hot news for interesting reading .  It’s also a common feature in the world travel magazines.  This is a spectacle that should be witnessed at least once in a lifetime.

Masai Mara reserve is one of the most well known parks, which borders Kenya and Tanzania. It is one of the richest wildlife sanctuaries. It is in this very terrain that the annual migration takes place when millions of zebras, wildebeests and gazelles cross the plains below on their way to the rich new grasses of the Serengeti..
